    SOLD!

    The price is $725 shipped, USPS Money Order unless we agree to other payment arrangements. Shipping to U.S. only.

    After trying a bunch of different P basses, including American Standards, AVRIs and several other Road Worn ones, this was far and away my favorite. However, until I played it for a couple hours, I didn't realize that the thicker neck was going to bother my arthritic left hand. It looks like I'm going to have to stick with thinner necks from now on. I've also found that I'm more comfortable on 32" scale necks

    I bought it new a month ago, though I believe the serial number indicates that it was made in '09. It's set up in it's stock configuration, but I had a 13 hole pickguard on it for a while, so there are a couple extra holes that are hidden under the stock pickguard.

    The neck is currently set up with a slight relief and the action can be set pretty low if desired and still plays cleanly. The truss rod works smoothly and the neck can be set anywhere from dead straight to a high relief. The bass weighs exactly 8 lbs. and is very comfortable and well balanced. It comes in a Fender gig bag, but I'm a fanatic about careful packing, so it will travel safely to you.

    I'd take certain 1x12 cabinets in partial trade or I'd do a straight swap for a pair of Aguilar DB112's or DB112NT's. I'd also be interested in basses with 32" scale lengths. I'm willing to consider other trade offers with cash either way as appropriate.

    The actual body color has more red in it. My cheap camera didn't reproduce the color very accurately.

    Definitely not disagreeing! :hyper:

    But seems like taking care of a RW seems paradoxical, no? :bag:

    RW goodness bump!!

    I gigged mine last night and I was just as fearful of bumping and bruising it as my Mint Ric 4003;) Bump for a fantastic bass and great value.

    I'm very careful not to bump the nicks or nick the bumps and I never touch the worn spots.

    Wait. Is that RW for Road Worn or my initials? I have nicks and bumps and worn spots too... :eyebrow:

    Is it just my impression or these basses get less and less reliced every year?

    Yes... I have the non-RW version of this bass... Others come and go... but this one never will.

    I looked at quite a few new ones and noticed that the sanded in wear patterns all tend to be in the same places, but there were noticeable differences in amount of finish removed. Probably depends on the mood of whoever is using the sander at the time. Personally, I'm ambivalent about the whole reliced concept, but for the money I couldn't find any other basses that felt or sounded as good. The broken in feel of them is nice.

    I've had 2 P RWs and they were monstrous. Huge sound and great feel. That's why I'm contemplating over this one :)

    I tweaked the color in the photos to try and get it closer to the actual body color. It was too washed out looking. It may be a little too saturated now, but it is closer. You might want to refresh the page if you've looked at this thread before.
